actresses who say vote mitt romney? >> i think maybe there's some bit of both. i have no idea. as you know, there are a lot of people on twitter, some people there do not say the nicest things to people, tuparticularl people in the public eye. that happens a lot. can i get into the mind of people who do that sort of thing, i absolutely cannot. is it general, do people think that more of hollywood is liberal than conservative? i think that people generally think that's true. >> rick, what do you make of this? it seems a particularly poisonous reaction. she seems a perfectly nice young lady to me. she's perfectly entitled for who the hell she likes. you guys are the beneficiary here of her vote. i'm sure mitt romney is very happy about that. but it came in a week when there was an 18 point swing back to mitt romney amongst women. hardly surprising that a woman, despite the fact she's a black actress, has decided that she prefers mitt romney now. lots of women are making that decision. so why the fury? >> i think there are lots of blacks supporting romney. there are lots of gays supporting r

with the romney campaign, in virginia tonight, peter, thank you, and to the rest of our team, chief affairs correspondent andrea mitchell and our white house director, chuck todd, both in the washington bureau. chuck, let's begin with you, two new polls, different sets of numbers, what do the numbers tell you? >> reporter: look, when i dug into them, they both told us the same thing, there is a spike in the republican enthusiasm for romney, that is why you see the voters shifting towards romney. and it depends on how you wait to sample. and yes, one poll seems to be a little more republican than the gallup goal -- polls, there is more enthusiasm among likely republican voters than likely democratic voters. this has been a problem for the democrats for six months, and you're seeing more in this poll than the last debate. and the big moment will be joe biden, and paul ryan, you see them prepping in a way they have not done before. they have done a lot of mock debate sessions with joe biden. paul ryan has never been on this big a stage before. he has reviewed the sarah palin debate, watched jo

that the horse race goes in romney's favor but the job approval inches one point in obama's direction. both camps could spin this positively. president obama could say this means people haven't given up. we could win the voters back. if you're the romney team, you say this tells us that there was something gained by people get to go like mitt romney more or perhaps see him as a plausible president. mitt romney is in better shape. in the romney story line is true, that may have a lasting impact. >> it's interesting his job approval goes up following the terrible debate. also interesting are the swing states of course. these are the new swing state polls and we're looking at these now for the first time. florida, ohio and virginia. what are we seeing? before it looked like a sizeable lead for obama. not so much anymore. >> the swing states are close because the national polls are close. mitt romney up by two in florida, one in virginia. still trails by a point in ohio. of all the swing states, ohio is the most interesting because it is where president obama is outperforming national numbers. it is
that mitt romney has largely erased president obama's lead here in the crucial battleground state of ohio, and this morning both campaigns are trying to capture that special energy that exists in a near election and a narrowing race. with the calendar ticking down to november 6th on a crisp ohio night, mitt romney offered an alternative to the obama calls four more years >> i think the right chant ought to be four more weeks, four more weeks, all right. >> reporter: new jersey governor chris christie looked directly into the camera and delivered this blunt message. >> mr. president, you have lived inside 1600 pennsylvania for four years. if you can't change washington from inside the white house, then let's get you the plane ticket back to chicago you've earned! >> reporter: also in ohio, trying to hang on to a slim lead, president obama as a new poll shows romney has trimmed his opponent's advantage to four points. >> i need you fired up. i need you ready to go to vote because we've got some work to do. we've got an election to win. everything that we fought for in 2008 is on the line in

points, i mean, if you take it as true -- by the way, both campaigns are doing their own polling, and that's what they'll decide. megyn: and we'll know where we see the president and mitt romney show up. >> and the ads on the, but, yeah, as you get states getting closer, it means you have to start spending in more states. i think both campaigns thought by now it would be down to -- and i agree with ed. look, right now it's essentially five states. romney has to win ohio and florida, he's got to win virginia, north carolina. and and so then he's got to pick up one somewhere along the way. and that's why you're seeing a blocking strategy by obama. i mean, they're in their carpet bombing ohio and virginia, and the president's time because if they can stop him in one of those two states -- megyn: but how much, how much can those ads help, ed? we saw this debate performance which, um, a columnist at the daily beast, andrew sullivan, who's a left-leaning guy although, i don't know, he disputes that, he wrote a column talking about did obama just throw the entire election away. and he s
that both obama and romney need to address, which is the question of al qaeda and u.s. national security is really what american voters do care about. they may be less concerned about what is happening with writing a new constitution in tunisia, although that is an important moment for this middle east, but they are certainly concerned if the instability of this up evil gives rise to new ungoverned spaces, which allow al qaeda or its affiliate and ideally that is what happened in benghazi and parts of libya. libya arguably is the new semi-failed state in the business central government control over all of this territory and that's part of why you saw this terrible security strategy. but on the specifics of the incident, there's an official investigation and we not only by the ei, the state department has launched what it calls an official accountability review board. those are early into this investigation so we don't have a full picture even now of what actually occurred here but there's no question this is a major tragedy. it's the first time in two decades the u.s. that there's been a
if you look at what they have said on this issue, both obama and romney's plans are vague. if i were moderating the debate that is coming october 3rd, i would spend about half of it asking them what would you do specifically. give us the diagnosis of the plan -- [applause] and tell us what you're really going to do. and part of that question is there has to be a willingness to compromise, and there has to be an innate willingness to do things that are painful for your side. i'm going to stop there, and we'll do questions. one more story. remember years ago the head of simon & schuster after i had published one of my books took me to dinner in new york city at one of these restaurants where you would never want to go where you have to pay. [laughter] and he said what's your next book going to be about in and i said, oh, well, i haven't decided. i'm going to do some thinking, some reading, some research. and he looked at me and said, what? i said, yeah, i want to do thinking, reading, reporting, weighing the alternatives, and he said why are you going to waste your time?

... president obama and i both care about poor and middle-class families. [ female announcer ] but this is what the budget plan mitt romney supports actually does. more huge tax breaks skewed to the wealthy. while cutting nearly eight hundred billion from medicaid... even though middle-class families rely on medicaid to help loved ones cover nursing-home care. and it helps parents support children with disabilities. if mitt romney really "cares," wouldn't we see it in his priorities? >>> jerry sandusky is set to be sentenced tomorrow. he has been in isolation at the pennsylvania prison since june when he was convicted of 45 counts of child sex abuse. sandusky's attorney believes the 6 #-year-old will spend the rest of his life behind bars. >>> the number of rare meningitis cases linked to a tainted steroid treatment has now risen to 91, spanning nain streets appears killing seven. another case is reported in maryland this weekends bringing total there to three. eighteen cases have been reported in virginia with one death in each state. the massachusetts pharmacy linked to product issued a volun
